Combination Of Ranged & Melee Attacks
Dragonite's moves may be similar to Charizard, which is capable of using both melees & ranged attacks as its assigned moves. Here's a sneak peek at some of Dragonite's moves based on the official video release.
Headbutt Dash Attack
Based on the trailer, we can see Dragonite using its head to dash in and attack Bouffalant. This move is then followed up by consecutive melee attacks from different directions.
This move is similar to Venusaur's Solar Beam but in this case Dragonite blasts its target with scorching fire. It also has a short animation delay so users may need to practice their aiming later to effectively hit enemies with this move, especially moving targets.All Moves List

Dragonite Basics Tips
This section has basic tips and tricks that you must know to effectively control Dragonite. Treat this as a supplement to the Beginner's Guide.
| ① Prioritize level progression in early stages|
Since Dragonite has three forms, it's best to focus Dratini on farming during the early game so it may evolve quickly and unlock its damage-dealing moves. This is to ensure that it can survive the harsh battles that may arise as time goes by.
▶ How To Level Up Fast
| ② Stay close with allies|
Dratini may be targeted and harassed when alone, this can cost you a level disadvantage later so may sure to stick with allies. Also, try to check the map once in a while to know where your allies and enemies are to avoid getting ganked.
▶ Map Guide
|③ Equip the right Held Items|
Equip Dragonite with Held Items to increase its damage output or buff up its defense in preparation for the intense battles in the Battle Arena. You can start out with the recommended items first then experiment later on with which items suit your play style.

Dragonite Strengths & Weaknesses
| ・ Has a wide array of long range attacks that Dragonite can use to KO fleeing opponents or steal last hits from team objectives.|
・ Its dash attack moves can also be used as an escape tool that increases its survivability in the battle field.
・ Dragonite's Unite Move has the potential to deal tremendous damage to multiple enemies at once. Can be useful in situations where Pokemon gathers in crowds like Zapdos fights.
|・ May have difficulty aiming at moving targets and miss enemies due to delays from some of its moves short animation beforehand.|
・ You may not be able to control its fire-beam type of move once it is executed. Dragonite may need assistance in pinning down enemies in their place first before using this.
・Dragonite having similar to Charizard may also be a late bloomer & game changer. Until it reaches its first powerspike, it may be vulnerable in getting knocked out in battle during the early stages.
The number of ★ shows the level on a particular route area.
|Top||Recommendation level: ★★ ・|
Dratini can play an active role at the top along with an ally defender at its side. With Rotom nearby, they can often capture it to fight with them when aggressively push lanes.
|Middle||Recommendation level: ★★★|
Dratini can quickly KO wild Pokemon and evolve quickly by jungling in the central area. Team fights don't usually occur in this area so Dratini can safely farm and avoid getting harrased during the early stages.
|Bottom||Recommendation level: ★★・|
Dratini may get extra EXP from the additional wild Pokemon in this area and evolve quickly before the first Drednaw fight. With its dash attacks, it can swiftly jump in and out of team fights easily.
